Whale Watch Kaikoura information
With knowledgeable guides and fascinating ‘world of whales’ on-board animation, Kaikoura’s biggest operator heads out on boat trips (with admirable frequency) to introduce you to some of the big fellas. It’ll refund 80% of your fare if no whales are sighted (success rate: 95%). If this trip is a must for you, allow a few days flexibility in case the weather turns to custard.
